A Prize Catch for Fresh and Salt Water AnglersBook - 1998
Fishing Basics is possibly the only fishing handbook a fisherman will ever need. Comprehensive yet succinct, authoritative and a pleasure to read, it covers every popular species of sportfish found in North America and every conceivable category of fishing. It tells where to go for the best catches, how to attract fish, what equipment you'll need and what you should and shouldn't expect. A fishing handbook for the ages, the book features 350 illustrations and photos-most in color-of fish species and fishing sites, as well as flies, lures, rods, reels, clothing and other necessary equipment. Additional chapters on the changes in fishing include women in fishing, conservation and sportfish restoration. Fishing Basics also provides complete information on how to contact fishing clubs and Fish & Wildlife Services all over the U.S. and Canada.
